Seems like the PEBCAK virus is doing the rounds again.

The 3rd party rich editor has many issues. Plain text and bbcode are reliable. Richedit is useful but requires a lot of workaround.

gehenna: Seems like the PEBCAK virus is doing the rounds again.

Have you tried yourself to do just that - copy paste from Google search of the movie pointing at IMDB link using Firefox and apply ctrl-B before that blurp?
Less expected from the moderator...
I have tested hundreds of software releases and have extraordinary attention to details my friend...
Or should I support that with the screencapturing video?

In response to the review of Pacific Rim: I have to say, it's one of those movies that truly IS chewing gum for the eyeballs. 

It is richly rewarding (if the brain is switched off) but loses its flavour and consistency over time. 


It's much like the Transformers movie franchise  - fun to watch but utterly silly. 







Handsome Dan Has Spoken.
Handsome Dan is also still somewhat perplexed...

^except Pacific Rim has a pretty easy to follow storyline.  Some of those Transformers films are just 2 hour action scenes with no plot to support them.  I remember watching Pacific Rim with my mum in the cinema.  I was on the edge of my seat for the whole movie just drinking in the visuals.  Given the cast (with the exception of Idris Elba) it was never going to be a great film, but I feel like del Toro did strike a very good balance between the over the top plot and the visuals.

Area 51 streamed will give it 3/10. I love scifi but I felt this was something you dont want to step in.

If I had wings.  will give 7/10  as some major plot holes.  Normally wouldnt give this type a glance but it was quite entertaining.  Nothing deep or action but just a good family film to enjoy on a rainy day

Mad Max Fury Road 8/10

Action from the get go for the first hour of the movie, really enjoyed it not so much substance of a story but that was made up for.

blakamin: Kingsman: the secret service. 

I enjoyed it immensely! 


i was pleasantly surprised by this too.

teasers/trailers had it as a sort of harry potter for spies but it's not a kiddies film.

the kick-ass guys turn their hand to the spy genre.

Another bluray ($1 crazy tuesday, love it!):

Hummingbird (AKA Redemption) (2013) - Jason Statham

Agree with low rating on IMDB.

 

The plot is very much life-like. Many veterans can’t find their place in life.

 

Made an effort to watch to the end but still unsure what message the author was trying to deliver?
"Do not go to war or end up like that", perhaps?

 

It is not the first movie about that. Previous were similarly sad.

 

Not entertaining.

it wasn't that bad, certainly better than the awful parker adaptation, perhaps hummingbird was not action packed enough for the typical statham fan ?

Just watched Mousehunt 1997 with Nathan Lane and Lee Evans.Very funny with plenty of slapstick humor such as a room full of mouse traps and the resulting chaos with the mouse uses a cherry to set off all the traps.

I didn't like Fury road so much 6/10

The first half was good. But then the plot got a bit hokey and predictable, and the whole thing started to get tedious.

It wasn't a bad film, but I didn't think it was a great one either.
